Animal-based mucus models

Animals are commonly used in basic research and preclinical studies for secretion of mucus A wide range of animal models can be used:

  • Small rodents
    • Rats
    • Mice
    • Ferrets
  • Large animal models
    • Dogs
    • Sheep
    • Horses
    • Pigs
  • External mucus models
    • Snails
    • Hagfish
    • Slugs


These animal models can be very useful for investigating the role of altered mucus, testing medical devices or evaluating the efficacy of a new drug. The viscoelastic properties of mucus are necessary for your R&D and preclinical projects.
